Teens at a juvenile detention center in Chicago are trying to creep on a come up by suing Fox’s “Empire,” claiming their ability to get an education was impeded when their facility was used to shoot scenes for last season’s premiere episodes.

According to TMZ, the litigants are kids at Cook Co. Juvenile Temporary Detention Center in Chicago. They claim the guards put them all on lockdown during nearly two weeks of shooting, meaning they were held in their pods with no access to the rec yard, library and chapel, TMZ reported. Also family visits were interrupted.

The teens say their education was affected as well. Although teachers were dispatched to cells and pods, the kids claim the tutoring was not effective. “This was ‘school’ in name only,” and often times “chaotic,” they stated in the lawsuit.

They further point out that “Empire” episodes make up to $750,000 per 30 second commercial, and they want a cut. They’re suing FOX, Cook County and the warden, according to TMZ.

    All three of you idiots sound as stupid as the producers of the show. It doesn’t matter what caused them to be there, and what would cause a black man to pay everyone involved, and cause for the those affected to be locked up while shooting a damn TV show. Idiots what does one thing have to do with the other? Blacks have such a slave man mentality, and make whites arguments for them. It’s just like when black men get killed, and they haven’t lived perfect lives. Idiots what does one thing have to do with another. Learn what critical thinking is.
